EPF Balance Check Steps: Every month, money for an employee’s Employee Provident Fund is deducted from their salary accounts. Along with that, the employer also contributes money to their employees’ PF accounts. The employer deposits the PF money every month by deducting a certain amount from your salary and you get annual interest on it. Usually, the PF account is the first step towards retirement corpus of a salaried person.
How is EPF money deducted?
twelve per cent of the basic pay and DA of any employee is deposited in the PF account.
The company also deposits 12 per cent contribution into the employee’s PF account.
Of the company’s contribution, 3.67 per cent is credited to the EPF account.
At the same time, 8.33 per cent money is deposited in the Pension Scheme.
